Party update

…ok, so I must give you guys an update on the party planning.

Paintwork – TJ is working on the Photo Booth, and Captain Hook’s ring toss – paint jobs are almost complete. We intend to get onto the sign post tomorrow evening.

Sewing – I am still cutting out bunting; and need to make some Peter Pan hats for the adult helpers – so that we are identifiable. I am half way done with Thandi’s Wendy Darling costume, and then will get onto Charlotte’s Tinkerbell one. I need to check my runners for the table – I may need a second one.

Foodie things – for the goodie bags/take home treats – consol bottles have been bought, green and white sweeties are being procured. I have green and white jelly beans, white marshmallows and now need another green sweetie – trying to find the Haribo frogs in my neck of the woods is proving challenging! (if anyone feels like sending me some – shout!) Sugar Crystals are growing – I hope I will have enough! We have plans for fudge/smudge/popcorn/biscuits/sandwiches/cupcakes and the cake. The ever awesome TAFKAD has made the figurines for the cake – I cannot wait to put it all together!

Activity planning – tiny bottles and coloured sand are ready for the ‘Make your own Pixie Dust’ activity. Sure to be a hit! The plank is ready for the kids to walk and the treasure chest needs it’s lid so that it can be buried!

So, on track, I think. I will try to post a few pictures as we go along, just don’t have any nice ones today.

Send me a photo of what you need and I’ll try and source it. We have a big cash and carry around the corner that may have it.

Sounds like fun. I decided I am going to start my sewing early, as I feel too crazy closer to the party date. I have been having fun pinning stuff.

Please tell us how you make your sugar crystals.

Gosh, you are making me feel really lazy. I’m not half as creative and so often I get the party planners to do it.
I can’t wait for the end pics. Going to be a blast
